Awesome experience! Sarah our driver was brilliant, informative and looked after everyone the whole trip! She even swung back round the falls so we could get a couple more pics! Jeremy on the camera had the best humour. Great people, awesome trip, the Huka Falls are just an added bonus! Thanks team + Chopper :)

The perfect way to silence the kids, and then hear them scream there heads off. Definently going to get wet on this one, and that they did. Even managed to get some great photos from the various passes the jet makes with the jetty. Well recommended for anybody passing through Taupo.

An awesome jet boat ride, fantastic staff, skilled drivers full of knowledge about the river and the falls. The only way you'll get to see Huka Falls from the base - and have photos to prove it!
